St. Jerome Safe Haven

Safe Haven Volunteers

In a few weeks St. Jerome’s will once again participate in Safe Haven, a temporary men’s shelter that operates from Thanksgiving to mid-March. Fifteen Churches and Congregations across PG County take turns hosting 12 - 20 men during these winter months. Each church welcomes the men for a week.

We will host our guests in the Gold Room from Sunday Evening, February 9th until the morning of Sunday, February 16th.

Volunteers serve as chaperones during the night, prepare and serve an evening hot meal, drop off bagged lunches or continental breakfast, and do laundry. We need help setting up the Gold Room on February 9th and transporting supplies to the next church on February 16th. We also need supplies to help the men stay warm. 

**There will be an optional meeting on February 1st at 9 am in the Gold Room for volunteers where we can answer questions, provide further details, and go over procedures. If you are new to Safe Haven or want to learn more about it, please join us at that meeting.**
